System Thinking in a Global Context to Foster Transcendent Leadership


This paper examines contemporary topics of leadership globally and its importance to be applied within multiple levels of governance. This paper is grounded in theory employing a theoretical framework to conduct qualitative deductive and inductive analysis (Maxwell, 2013), Patton (2015) posits that ‘Grounded theory emphasizes steps and procedures for connecting induction and deduction through the constant comparative method.’ Through the examination of theories like Systems Thinking framing model in relation to Transcendent Leadership and governance, the need arises for Systems Thinking theory, by which innovative solutions can be achieved for thriving international organizations. With the complexity and interdependency nowadays in pedagogy, concepts, and interaction, the shift in global leadership enacts a new demand for holistic inquiry fostering nonlinearity, interdependency, and an integral framework of thinking, thereby improving synergy in leadership and productivity of all systems, what Gardner (2006) calls ‘transcendent Leadership.’
